ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque is on track to meet its water conservation goal.
The Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority says customers used 14.62 billion gallons of water through the end of June.
That's 328 million gallons under the year-to-date conservation goal of 14.95 billion gallons for this point in the year.
The authority's water resources manager, John Stomp, says the area is on track to meet its annual per-capita goal of 159 gallons per person per day.
He says, however, temperatures are heating up, and that's bound to mean more water use.
He encourages people not to water their yards more than three days a week — and less if it rains.
